    Bontrager ACX 2.35″ get the thumbs up from me. OK, not fully UST (You need to use sealant), but they’re lighter than a full UST tyre and you should always use a bit of sealant anyway IMO.

    Or there’s the Bontrager Big Earl’s in 2.35″ too.

    Always Maxxis High Roller LUST 2.35″ too, though these will be expensive, and I’ve only seen them in the Super Tacky Compound which is sooooooooft and sloooooooow for anything other than DH riding.

    2.4 schwalbe fat alberts, if they are half as good as the non ust version they should be excellent

    Ive got High roller UST 2.3 and Bonty ACX 2.35, much prefer Bonty, alot faster rolling with near as much grip. No probs ripping on rocks at lakes / peaks.

    I don’t think my LUST HR is the Super Tacky compound, fwiw.

    Rubber Queen 2.4 has even more volume, rode them on a demo bike, quite impressed.

    My UST HRs are 42a. Couldnt get 60a.

    Big fan of 2.4 Schwalbe Fat Albert’s : about 950g if I remember right, and come up fairly big (bigger than a Maxxis 2.35: about the same size as a Minion / HighRoller 2.5)

    Much less vulnerable to pinches than Maxxis LUSTs.

    Good allrounder: fairly fast roller (but then I’m used to dual ply 2.5 supertacky highrollers so others might disagree!)and good in mud & dry.

    The 2.35 lust high rollers are listed as being 42a, but theyre not, theyre 60a. I have both the supertacky “silkworm” highrollers and the lust highrollers and there is a massive difference in the compounds.

    Currently running a combination of 2.35 Fat Albert rear and 2.4 Big Betty front. The Big Betty comes up quite light at 800g and the Fat Albert is around 950g. Both UST versions.
